Dear EPALE colleagues,
Our thematic focus for February was on the role of social media in adult learning. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community published a number of inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources.
As part of our March focus on equity in adult learning, we want to invite you to join our online written discussion on how to ensure optimal inclusion in adult learning on the provision and policy levels. The discussion will be in English and will take place on this page on 22 March 2018. It will be moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinator Simon Broek.
Listen to our latest podcast where EPALE’s thematic coordinators discuss the challenges and potential solutions for making adult education more inclusive.
